Austin, Texas, April 14, 2017 - Recent studies have shown that lackluster performance in school can be the result of vision problems. The Austin eye care specialists at Austin Vision Therapy Center are aware that even people with 20/20 vision can still have problems. There is much more to perfect vision than simply clarity, says Dr. Denise Smith. In a typical classroom as many as four children have undiagnosed vision problems that could lead to underperformance in math, reading, spelling, and writing by otherwise bright children.

Often, children who suffer from vision problems that affect their learning do not report the symptoms. These children assume that everyone sees in the same as that they do and may not even realize that they have a problem. However, good vision is an acquired skill similar to walking and talking and more and more time that is spent doing activities that develop good vision is instead being spent in front of computer screens, watching television, or playing on a mobile device.

Fortunately, there is vision care in Austin that can identify vision problems that are the cause of scholastic struggles. Not only that, vision therapy helps retrain the eye to see properly in order to address issues that cannot be fixed by glasses. Vision therapy has not only helped students who have difficulty succeeding in school, it also is useful in sports. From children who struggle at athletics to professional athletes looking for an extra edge, vision therapy has proven a successful way of improving skills.

A visit to an Austin vision center for vision training is great for both children and adults. Whether clients are looking to learn vision skills for the first time, relearn skills that have faded, or reinforce existing skills. Vision therapy works by addressing the root of the problem rather than just its symptoms. For more information or to schedule an appointment call The Center for Vision Development at 512-351-7288.
